    Does anyone have a picture of how the hard line runs from the carb (Holley 4360) down to the filter on a '70 Sport Fury GT ?

    Everyone and his brother-in-law has a re-pop fuel line for the AVS equipped 440's, but the Holley equipped lines don't seem to exist. I had reached out to one vendor who lists them for 440/Holley A/B/E bodies and he says they are different for a C body.
    Why they would be, I have no idea. :wtf:

    I wonder if they're the same for a 67 Imperial with a 4160?

    I believe the difference is with carburetor inlet fitting only. The gas line would be the same.
    Need confirmation from others, tho. Memory storage in my brain is a tad fuzzy on this issue.

    The fuel line attaches to the carburetor in a completely different spot from the Carter to the Holley.

    Thanks.
    Thinking back more, the experience I was drawing on was when I converted my stock Carter to an aftermarket Holly. That conversion only required swapping out said fittings.

    These images are from the 69 Plymouth Engine Equipment Assembly Manual for all Fury's I through VIP and SW.

    Yep that second one looks identical to what is currently on the green 67 imperial coupe.

    The answer from the prospective vendor is "normal", if their catalog doesn't list it for a C-body, then it doesn't fit a C-body . . . BUT. it very possibly could, should anybody care to try it. Most of their catalogs have some sort of image for the part, so look at those and see if it looks like what you need. DON'T tell them what you're going to use it for, just pretend it's for an engine out of a B-body and then return it if it doesn't work. Might have to pay return shipping, though, if it doesn't work.

    IF you have the time, wait until a major swap meet where they are, with lines on display.

    Several ways to play that deal. Of course, just to get things running, some high-quality rubber fuel line and fittings for temporary use.

    Check the repro line vendors' online catalogs, which might help, too.

    Just some thoughts,

    I'm in total agreement with Detmatt. That's how it is run on my 440 in my 68 NYer.

    Expanding on CBODY67's idea, you could also go to forbbodiesonly and see if anyone on there has a 70 Plymouth Engine Equipment Assembly Manual for B bodies to see if it shows the same diagram for B's. If they're the same, that would tell you weather the B fuel line would be the same.

    That was my thought as well. I think I'll just buy it and see how it lines up.

    What the hell, it's only money.
